What was the Physiotherapy After Covid Evaluation about?

Find out more about why and how the CSP conducted the PACE survey.

What was PACE about?

The PACE survey, which ran between 13 July and 7 August, was conducted to better understand the rehabilitation needs of patients with Covid-19.

Any CSP member was able to complete the survey – physiotherapists, associate members and students. Only Covid-19 patients were included in the initial project, although more rehabilitation patients could be included in further phases.

What patients were included?

  • All adult patients with a Covid-19 diagnosis being rehabilitated outside of an acute inpatient hospital setting anywhere in the UK.
  • Each patient was only included once.

Who completed the survey?

  • Any CSP member was able to complete the survey - physiotherapists, associate members and students.
  • If a patient was seen by multiple members of staff, there should have been local agreement of who filled in the survey for that patient.
  • The survey took roughly 5 minutes to complete.

Further information

  • Only Covid-19 patients were included in the initial project although more rehabilitation patients could be included in further phases of the project.
  • Data collection could not be mandated.
  • NO patient, member or organisation-identifiable information was collected or shared.
  • The data gathered was stored and presented by the CSP in accordance with GDPR.
  • The platforms did not link to existing electronic patient records nor were data submissions accepted from these systems.
  • No new devices were provided for CSP members to collect this data and the expectation was for them to use their own existing devices (professional and/or personal).
